Acer’s Iconia Tab A700 Tablet Launched


Finally, near retina quality HD displays are in Android tablets too. Acer will ship the Iconia Tab A700 later this month while the preorders have begun today. A grey or black 32 GB model will retail for $449.99. The high-end tablet compares to the likes of gadgets like the Asus TF300 Transformer Pad and Acer’s own A510 Iconia Tab.

Measuring 10.2 x 6.9 x 0.43 inches and weighing 1.47 lbs, the design is not particularly sleek but not bulkier either. The iPad, a bit smaller than the A700, is just 0.37 inches thick and weighs just about the same. The Acer Iconia Tab A700 has a 10.1” HD display with a high resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels at 224ppi although it is still less than the iPad screen resolution of 2048 x 1526 pixels. The screen has an aspect ratio of 800:1 and a wide 178-degree viewing angle.


A Tegra 3 quad 1.3 GHz Nvidia processor, 1 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage space, will run the A700. It will be launched in the 4.0 Android ICS platform. Other specifications are- Wi-Fi, Blutooth 2.1 and comes with a 5 MP rear and 1 MP front camera. However, there is no 3G version of the tablet.
